More light?

Hi all,

Do these plants need more light? They are ampullaria, bicalcarata, hookerania, and a bunch of Vikings.
I'm going to guess the group of small plants are the vikings, since you likely got them from the same place I did. Mine have more color, so they can certainly handle more light. I couldn't say about the rest, though I know ampullaria is very light-sensitive.
Yep, they are and we did. They've done pretty well for me this summer - nothing, until I over them out of deep shade to where they are now, and they popped tons of pitchers. So they can handle more light... But do they need more?

My backyard in the summer has limited areas of part sun. I can easily do bright shade, which they are in now, or full sun, but if these NEED more light than what they've been getting ill figure it out. If they look fine, I'll leave them where they are.
I couldn't say if they really need more light, but I have some nearly solid red pitchers (and some pretty red leaves) with the plants sitting near the outer edge of my LED light range.
